Mama Dog Becomes Her Rescuer’s Best Co-Pilot Ever

Zorra, a canine with a captivating tale, embarked on a unique journey. At just nine months old, she found herself expecting and soon welcomed a delightful litter of seven puppies.

In Yakima, Washington, Zorra and her pups sought shelter beneath a truck canopy, battling the odds for survival. Fortunately, a compassionate soul discovered them, orchestrated their rescue, and ushered them to The Humane Society, nestled in Yakima.


After nurturing her babies at the shelter until they all found homes, it was Zorra’s turn to be welcomed into a loving family. Coinciding with Ty and his family’s commemoration of their late dog’s one-year passing, Zorra’s sweet visage graced an online adoption post.

Taking it as a serendipitous cue, Ty eagerly hopped into his car and made his way to the shelter to meet her in person.

The moment she caught sight of him, Zorra dashed over and leapt into Ty’s lap.

“It was like a dog greeting you after coming home and we were like ‘Oh, okay, this is not normal experience with a dog in a rescue shelter,’” said Ty.

Sensing a familiar connection, Ty found it impossible to part ways with Zorra at the shelter. Without hesitation, he decided to adopt her as his own.

New Life

Zorra’s fresh existence is anything but dull. With her energetic adoptive parents who thrive on outdoor escapades, this cheerful pup effortlessly assimilated into their dynamic lifestyle.

I’m a pilot and she flies with us. We made her a little headset to protect her hearing and she loves to go along in there.

Zorra’s time on the plane mirrors a puppy’s journey in a car, with one notable exception: no sticking her head out the window. She delights in gazing out, marveling at the scenic landscapes whizzing past.

Beyond her role as co-pilot, Zorra embodies remarkable hunting prowess. Raising seven pups at a tender age, she honed her patience and keen observation skills.

When we let her into the backyard, we’ll watch her just learn from a blade of grass that is blowing in the wind and she’ll study it for an hour. It’s very insightful to see that this is what a dog who’s had to provide for herself has learned.

She’s an avid zoomies enthusiast, frequently breaking into bouts of high-speed running several times a day. Whether she’s tossing a toy skyward and catching it or simply digging holes in her grandparents’ yard, she’s always on the move.

DNA Test

Due to her captivating appearance, Ty opted to conduct a DNA test on her to precisely identify her breed.

Her DNA says that she’s Husky and American Pit Bull and then Supermutt.

Despite the amalgamation of these remarkable breeds, Zorra remains a notably tranquil canine, preferring to convey her thoughts through expressive gazes.

She is also very protective of her family. When Ty had eye surgery, leaving him on couch rest for some time, Zorra’s motherly instinct kicked in, making her stick by Ty’s side throughout his entire recovery.

And, if you are a guest coming over, don’t worry… she will not leave you out. Most likely, she will bring a toy and ask you to play her favorite game – tug of war.

The funny thing is that at times she’ll bring her tug-of-war toys to the cats to try to play tug with them. And, you know, cats don’t do that.

Final Word

This amazing doggo seized the opportunity to bid farewell to her former life, embracing relaxation and embracing her true potential. With her new family by her side, Zorra’s only concern now is dominating every round of tug of war – a task I’m certain she excels at effortlessly.
